Jackie Blue

“Jackie Blue” was released in 1974 on “It’ll Shine When it Shines” by the Ozark Mountain Daredevils, once referred to a “countrified Steely Dan.” The first version of Jackie Blue was about a strange drug dealer but the record company suggested changing it to be about a girl with the drug references scaled back. I like the musical arrangement and the lyrics remind me of some women I have known.
